The remote connects via Bluetooth, and works with a variety of Apple devices, including Macintosh computers and the iPad.

Click the central button to play your stored music, with other controls to adjust volume or skip to a different tune.
Thereís also a camera control button. Launch the Camera app, and this button lets you shoot photos from across the room. Youíll need some sort of mini-tripod to hold your iPhone, but you canít expect Satechi to do everything for you.
